Comforts from the Cross
Celebrating the Gospel One Day at a Time
Many women don’t always find solace in their relationship with Christ because they don’t see how his life, death, and resurrection connect with daily pressures and frustrations.
Comforts from the Cross provides bite-sized readings to remind women of their place in Christ and of his love in the midst of their busy lives. Elyse Fitzpatrick shows how gospel truths such as justification, sanctification, and redemption can refresh women’s souls every day. These five-minute celebrations of the gospel relieve readers of legalistic condemnation and empower them for joyful obedience.
Great for gift-giving or personal encouragement, Fitzpatrick’s book will help busy women grasp the comforts of the gospel message. Now redesigned.
ELYSE M. FITZPATRICK holds a masters degree in biblical counseling from Trinity Theological Seminary. She is a retreat and conference speaker, head of Women Helping Women Ministries, and a member of the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors. Fitzpatrick has authored nearly a dozen books, including Because He Loves Me.
“These thirty-one short readings will scoot you up to the banquet table of God’s grace and glory and leave you feasting on your Savior and the cross. But beware: this cross-centered diet will change the way you live. Get ready for joy, power, contentment, security, and hope to flood your life as you sink your teeth into this feast. These short meditations will shape your heart and mind. We need this book! The church today, particularly in America, has been languishing in selfish, impotent, shallow immaturity-barely able to survive, let alone thrive and make an impact on our culture. So this book is a gem that stands out in the mountain of Christian self-help, feel-good, and name-it-and-claim-it books that have dominated the Christian landscape for too long. Get this book. Read it, and give it away to someone else who needs a gospel booster shot.”
—Brad Bigney, Senior Pastor, Grace Fellowship Church, Florence, Kentucky
“The love of God in its deepest intensity is found in the immediate vicinity of the cross, and this is where Elyse invites her readers to dwell for thirty-one days of gospel meditation. Poignant and thoroughly biblical, Comforts from the Cross presents an endearing view of Christ that will encourage Christians with a fresh hope in their Savior. This book also provides a wide-ranging tour of gospel truths and shows readers how to apply them with life-changing results. This book is truly a gift to women who want their lives to bear more deeply the imprint of God’s love.”
